Diamondbacks exploring shortstop market

Doug Pensinger

After trading Stephen Drew, Kevin Towers is exploring the market at the shortstop position.

The Diamondbacks are actively trying to acquire a shortstop, with multiple reports involving different players coming in.

Danny Knobler of CBS Sports tweets that they have shown interest in Jhonny Peralta.

Peralta is not the only AL Central shortstop that Arizona has interest in, as two days ago it was reported by Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that the Diamondbacks and Red Sox were interested.

The Red Sox and Diamondbacks are two of the teams interested in Cabrera, who will earn $6.5 million in 2013 and $10 million in 2014. That’s fairly cheap for a starting shortstop, but with Mike Aviles now in tow, the Indians may listen to serious offers for both Cabrera and outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.

Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker tweets that the Diamondbacks are negotiating with Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajimi. You may remember him from when the Yankees failed to sign him last offseason.

It appears as though Kevin Towers is aggressively pursuing the options on the shortstop market, after already adding Cliff Pennington.
